ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) at Tallowood

missions_button_esolFor more than fifty years, Tallowood has been committed to teaching the English language to those new to America with the goal that they will become followers of Jesus Christ. Our ESOL history began with a small group of committed leaders teaching women from one Asian country and today the average representation is more than sixteen countries. We thank the Lord that we are welcoming the world which has come to Houston through the teaching of the English language.
